Description

At the end of Apartheid in 1994, about 82 million hectares of commercial farmland (86% of all farmland) was in the hands of the white minority. Over thirteen million black people lived in crowded former homelands under extreme poverty. Since 1994, the government of South Africa has initiated several land reform programs in order to address the racial imbalance in land holding and secure the land rights of historically disadvantaged people. This review of experiences of supporting emerging historically disadvantaged farmers examines the implementation of the land reform policy and its support programmes and documents several cases of support to emerging framers. Best practices are synthesised from the review and compared with international best practice experiences. The document will be of interest to policymakers, researchers, students and NGO staff working on land reform programs.
